Northwest Missouri State University has provided e-readers to students with electronic versions of their textbooks. Students no longer have to carry heavy books around, and can use the e-reader to search text, take notes, and have all their class materials on one small device.
Not all students like the technology. One student quoted in the article said she worried the reader could malfunction the night before a big test, and that she misses being able to flip the pages back and forth.
